Deep in the heart of Jakarta's slums lies an impenetrable safe house for the world's most dangerous killers and gangsters. Until now, the run-down apartment block has been considered untouchable to even the bravest of police. Cloaked under the cover of pre-dawn darkness and silence, an elite swat team is tasked with raiding the safe house in order to take down the notorious drug lord that runs it. But when a chance encounter with a spotter blows their cover and news of their assault reaches the drug lord, the building's lights are cut and all the exits blocked. Stranded on the sixth floor with no way out, the unit must fight their way through the city's worst to survive their mission. Starring Indonesian martial arts sensation Iko Uwais.
An elite squad of cops raid a ruthless-as-fuck drug lord's dungeon of death. A hyper-intense workout. Kissing your wife goodbye and hoping like fuck you will see her again. Headshot. Headshot. Headshot. Headshot. Catching a lucky break for a split-second. Hammer to the fuckin head. A bad lieutenant. A noble-as-fuck sergeant. A badass rookie with a secret agenda. Your last TV show. Shit-stained pants. The alarm of doom. The one honest guy in a building full of crazed fuckers. Hallway insanity. Mad fuckin Dog, the biggest fuckin Academy Award snub ever. Throwing a fucker out the window. A crazy-eyed fuck with a machete. Total darkness, then bullets every fuckin where. Guns take away the rush. Mad Dog vs.Sarge is like…
If Crocodile Dundee wielded action movies instead of knives, this is the movie he would hold up whenever some punk claimed to be wielding an action movie.
"That's not an action movie. THIS...is an action movie."
My face hurts from smiling for the last 100 minutes.
Its stupefying, pulpy excess is best summed up by the fact that the credits include the role "Drug Lab Guard #21."
One of the most incredible, exhilarating & heart-pounding action films to come out in a long time, The Raid (also known as The Raid: Redemption) is possibly the purest form of action extravaganza that has graced the film canvas in years which, apart from bringing a smile on every action film lover with its maddening depiction of blood, violence & insane fight sequences, also marks a significant breakthrough for the so-far-invisible Indonesian film industry to come into the attention of world cinema audience.
Although by no means it is a perfect film, but when it comes to pure adrenaline rush, thrilling factor & entertainment value, action films don't get anymore exciting, inventive or satisfying than this high-octane, full-throttled & top-gear action spectacle. The plot…
After months of reading glowing reviews, and two failed attempts to see it at the cinema, I finally got to watch it on the big screen and boy was it worth the wait. I was worried I had unrealistic expectations but the film more than met them. The movie is part Game of Death and part final level of computer game Streets of Rage 2 but with added guns, machetes and broken limbs.
Merantau Warrior proved that both director Gareth Evans and martial arts star, Iko Uwais, had great potential and we only had to wait one more film for that potential to be realised. The Raid is a proper balls-to-the-wall action film jam packed with bone crunching and innovative…

This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
(men yelling and grunting for an hour and a half)
Couldn't miss the chance to see a favourite on the big screen, with Gareth present to talk about it as it happened!
I'll surely notice the watches and extractor fans every time i see it now!!
It was good, but honestly all the hand-to-hand fighting wore me out by the end. Would have given it another star if it hadn't lost me in that. Maybe one of those kind of films you have to be in the mood for?
I understand this is stripped down built for export lean action film.... but it lacks any poetry of a Jackie Chan feature. The final fight I ended up fast forwarding it. You just get sick of looking at the movements. Great martial arts performances.
Worst soundtrack I've heard in a film in a long time. No score would of created more tension than yer over loud dad does breakbeat.
This could've been an A+, but the final 10 minutes dragged and eft me wanting more.
Still a fuckin good movie!!!
One of the greatest action movies I've seen.
If I didn't love Fury Road, this would've been my favorite of the decade.
Brutal, bloody fun!
I also saw Swiss Army Man, and a review will be up soon.
A masterpiece. Perhaps the best action film ever.
All I could think if wile I watched 31 was it really could've used a little shot of this. Brilliant suspense sceans innovative choreography breathtaking stunts.out gores most contemporary horror.
This is what a action movie should be
ok ok ok not as good as I remember it being (thought this was much superior to Dredd while in fact Dredd is probably the better movie) but GODDAMN those moves. a blast through the skull, a punch in your face, exactly what an action film should be. I quit watching Macbeth bc the friend I was watching it with kept falling asleep and The Raid kept him tense and glued to the screen for a 100min straight.
